Gary was a special person & friends to everyone he met, even if years passed before you would see him him again it would be like yesterday. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this difficult time in their lives.

Gary truly was one of the finest men I have known in my life. Growing up, listening to his stories of life, many influenced me and many choices I made. He was more of a brother than a cousin with my older brothers and it was a privilege to be in their company over the years. It will never be close to the same without him seated at our family poker games. His laugh was infectious. Although I'm sure it was there at times, but I never saw him angry, judgmental of others, just a kind spirit. A harder working man you will have great difficulty finding. It was very evident his love of family was a bottomless well. And finally, he is one of my heroes, someone I admired and respected. All of us will follow him, but few of us will leave a better legacy of family & love as did my cousin Gary...

Gary was a special friend and cousin, always had a smile and a arm across the shoulder when I seen him. I felt so honored when he asked me to come and jam with the basement band which my brother Al Boyd was a member of.. I loved being with them when I was up there. RIP Gary and play that steel guitar for the angels! My condolences to his family and friends

Gary was such a great guy. Always seemed to have something good to say about everyone. Even if you haven’t seen him in quite awhile, he still had a way of making you feel as though you were important in his life. He touched many lives and wont be forgotten. Prayers and much love going out to Wendy and Family 💕
